The Empire of Rajtech is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its restrictive gun laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 114 million Rajtech are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The thriving Rajtech economy, worth 8.59 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 75,352 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 546,278 per year while the poor average 3,284, a ratio of 166 to 1.

Summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, slaving over a hot stove to cook the family dinner isn't metaphorical in Rajtech, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Rajtech's national animal is the Ant.

Rajtech is ranked 67,153rd in the world and 1,229th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 60.55 on the Human Development Index.
